During her carrier, she won 2 LPGA tour victories, although she never won any major championship. She became a member of the U.S. Solheim cup team in 2009, 2011,2013, and was a member of the Curtis Cup team in 2004.
As no outstanding achievement comes without a struggle, Wie had her fair share of them. She was involved in several controversies, the biggest one being the one where she missed the cut at the 2007 Sony Open. There was also a lot of misunderstanding regarding her wrist injury, which is still, to this date, unclear. However, despite her downfall, she was ranked #4 in the Forbes' Top 20 under 25 lists'.
She was ranked #3 by Rolex World ranking in 2006, which was formulated in 2006. As the LPGA tour's minimum required age is 18, and she refused to request an exemption, she competed in limited events. Until she became qualified to get her tour card, she concentrated on school life, friends, art, and music. Her first professional event was the LPGA Samsung World Championship, wherein she was disqualified for illegally altering her ball placement near the hole.
In December 2008, she won her tour card and announced that she wished to continue competing against men. Given a fluctuating performance, Wie surpassed her records by tying for the 23rd position, which proved her best finish in a major since 2006. However, following that accomplishment, she failed to deliver a performance worthy of her qualification into the US Women's Open.Return to the previous page
